Sedari announces its co-operation with South Africa's UniForum SA as the organisation leading a pan-African effort supported by the African Union to apply for the dotAfrica top-level domain name (TLD).
UniForum SA director, Neil Dundas explains the rationale behind this domain name: "This is an important step for organisations and individuals interested in acquiring an African online identity, as dotAfrica will give added visibility and identity to operations in the region. We are pleased to be working with Sedari who is providing professional support for the ICANN application," Dundas continues.
"Sedari is delighted to be working on this inspirational domain name," says Liz Williams, Sedari's CEO. "This expansion of names is all about opportunity but also about empowerment: here is an opportunity to engage the continent of Africa and to help empower its people to make the web their own."

African Internet experts, country code managers, registrars and volunteers selected by the African Internet community are among those participating in steering the dotAfrica project.
